. it was such a focus on women voters in the election. women voters who came out for barack obama talking about the needs of women, the perspective that women bring, and i think that raises the bar for him to show that he is going to put women in these top jobs. i think the white house has been taken aback by the response they've gotten. they feel like he has a pretty good record substantively, but the optics of these opening weeks have not been good for them on this issue. >> their own photo that they released, the white house photo. he was also asked by jackie about reports that he is too imsular and hasn't reached out. i topt play a little bit of that. >> most people who know me know i'm a pretty friendly guy. i like a good party. and, you know, the truth is that, you know, when i was in the senate, i had great relationships over there, and up until the point that i became president, this was not an accusation that you heard very frequently. >> chuck, let's talk about this because, i mean, you know the white house, this president, better than anyone. is this an unfair criticism that he is to

more than president bush. and president obama chose women for arguably his two most important nominees, to the supreme court. soon, the president will have to replace jack lew as chief of staff. the top candidates are, you guessed it, men. and if jack lew is confirmed as treasury secretary, get ready to see the loopiest signature you've ever seen on a dollar bill. take a look. this is jack lew's actual signature. and that will go on every bill, of course, if he is confirmed as treasury secretary. don't really know what that literally actually says. >> it looks like a slinky, jon. i know, jack, he might clean it up a little bit. you talked about the white house chief of staff pick. likely not today, but mcdonough and klain, both qualified candidates. >> absolutely. and both close to the president. especially denis mcdonough. he was in the situation room with the president the night of the bin laden raid. >> and the debate prep for the president this year. >>> let's go to josh for the rest of the morning headlines. >> we're going to look at sweeping mortgage rules to protect homeowners a
in december, and it ran with an article that said "obama's remade inner circle has an all-male look so far." the white house released this photo, also, on tuesday. why has that become an issue? >> well, because the feminists, the national organization for women, for example, are leading a little petition drive against this. i don't think this is going to be the most effective campaign ever. not as if obama's credentials as a liberal are in disrepair. it's called a tempest in a teapot, one of the many subplots. >> to be fair to the president he has a lot of strong women around him. his top two advisors are his wife michelle and valley garrett and two members to the supreme court and strong women in the cabinet. at least in the first term, hillary clinton, kathleen sebelius and-- >> she's giving me a look. >> his record is better than president bush and no better than bill clinton-- >> how about a meritocracy. >> i'd like to have the press to look at who he has appointed and what's happened to them. >> jon: and jim says-- no, i'm sorry, charles krauthammer says the binders full of women cam

elect president barack obama, who has been so good for women across the country. it was pretty clear this election was about women. it was about women candidates. it was about women donors we heard a lot of women's issues, some in a way i would prefer not to hear about, and we sure heard a lot about women voters who made these decisions. there's been a lot of talk about this new democratic coalition, the winning coalition of young people, hispanics, and women. kind of like that coalition. think that's a great coalition. but women want to keep -- women are not just a voting bloc or subset of the population. they are 51% of the population, that's a majority. and less than 55% of women voted for president obama. there was an 18-point gender gap in this election, and for every unmarried woman who voted for romney two of them voted for obama. this is the change that we're seeing, and women weren't just the deciders in 2012. they will decide for elections to come. they're going to decide who holds the power in this country. and from our research from election night and all of our electoral
photo may explain that conclusion. in all about 43% of mr. obama's appointees have been women but if you look behind the man in the blue shirt, valerie jarrett is in that pier andcture, she's a woman. george w. bush more than one third of his employees were female. >> there is a lot of pressure for the obama administration to add women. >> there's still time. >>> a new cdc report says millions of american women are binge drinking putting their health and even lives at risk. more than 14 million well binge drink about three time as month, having an average of six alcoholic beverages at one sitting. we're joined at the table by dr. taylor. hello, dr. taylor. >> good morning. >> first of all, what is binge drinking and is that considering an colic? >> four drinks in two hours may not indicate you're an alcoholic, but it may indicate you're into drinking. binge drinking between the ages of 18 to 22 people report they binge drink because they're bored. from 22 to 30 because they're trying to escape something maybe from work. so certainly more women in the
of this country. and who did president obama pick? not one but two women. long after he's gone out of the white house those two women, those two appointees will be there. so this conversation about the president not being in support of diversity, the same person who pushed forward the overturning of don't ask, don't tell which affected, by the way, more women than men and more black women than white women, it's just -- to me it's just a silly conversation to be having. >> lz, anna, we have to leave it there. thanks for joining us. >>> here is something that may prompt you to take a deeper breath. look at this. how do you even function with this kind of pollution? we're going to tell you where that is next. this week get a bonus $15 itunes gift card with any qualifying $75 ink purchase. find thousands of big deals now... at officemax. i've got two tickets to paradise!l set? pack your bags, we'll leave tonight. black women than white women, this kind of pollution? no four. remember? whoooa whooaa whooo! you know ronny, folks who save hundreds of dollars by switching to geico sure are happy. and h
that president obama, who certainly is keen on women's leadership will get the point some time soon. >> all right, jane harman congresswoman out in california head of the wilson center. thanks for coming on this morning. >> thank you, chuck. >>> a giant in journalism and politics. >>> first, today's trivia question. of the 52 current senators who served in the u.s. house of representatives, how many of them served just one term? tweet me the answer @chucktodd and @dailyrundown.

for the sacrifices of the men and women and those of other countries. i also informed president obama of the sacrifices of the afghan people, the immense sacrifices of the afghan people in the last 10 years, both servicemen and the afghan people. i am going back to afghanistan this evening to bring to the afghan people the news of afghanistan standing shoulder to shoulder with america as a sovereign, independent country, but in cooperation and in partnership. thank you, mr. president. >> thank you very much. we have got two questions each from u.s. and afghan press, and we will start with scott wilson of "the washington post." >> mr. president, moving the deadline to the spring, it does that mean you will be winding down u.s. troops faster than you expected this year, and specifically, how many troops do you expect to leave in afghanistan beyond 2014 for the missions? and would you consider leaving any trips beyond that date without an immediate agreement for their actions? president karzai, you have spoken about the american presence poses as a threat to afghanistan sovereignty. how
know, it's not that there are no women now. we still have kathleen sebelius at health and human services and janet napolitano department of homeland security, but the women are getting few and far between, margery, in the second term obama cabinet. >> the talent we're seeing the same in corporate america, and 5% of ceo's women. and he had last term historically most women and minorities, with 22 cabinet seats, 8 women and 9 minorities. now we've heard that hilda solis the first latino woman in a cabinet is stepping down and so, again, this is creating a challenge of who are the women. now, there's two issues people talk about, it's the pipeline, but there are a lot of fabulous women, michelle portnoy, who democrats were looking at undersecretary of defense, hoping she might move to the pentagon and overlooked for that position and susan rice now out of the running. the question, do we have enough bench of women. the cabinet positions, it's long hours, my intern went over to the white house and works 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and for a woman would children, how do we work them so women ca
journal" why obama's white-guy problem seems worse than it is. and "washington post," obama needs some binders of women. and it didn't help when hilda solis announced her resignation yesterday. let me bring in political reporter for "the washington post" and staff writer sarah toeplitz. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> let me read to you part of ruth marcus' column. "not an outrage, but a shame. the face of power that president obama has chosen to present to the country and the world with his second term cabinet picks is striking. except for the african-american top of the pyramid for its retro look. white and male. it's "mad men" goes to washington, except it's leaving." >> so much of the debates that went on in the 2012 campaign was about the role of women. it was about mitt romney and his so-called lack of understanding of the role of women and lack of sort of acknowledgement of that. so now, the white house, where they roll out white man after white man, in terms of these top cabinet posts i think it has struck people as some srt of dissident in terms of what the obama claimed
, as potentials. why no more women in the cabinet? >> well, we're just losing two high-profile women in the obama administration, hillary clinton, but also lisa jackson at epa. it is -- seems to me the president's going to want to try to get in his last remaining appointments some women in play. susan rice can stay in at u.n. but you want to get a few more. you might see more women becoming assistant secretaries, high-level ambassadorships on the foreign policy front and i think you'll find a woman finding a spot in one of the domestic cabinet posts. but it's, i think, the president felt he had to pick the people that were best and their names were kerry, brennan and hagel, after he floated rice around a little and she didn't track. >> because of the movie "lincoln" that's been out and doris concerns good win's book "team of rivals," obama's cabinet picks now for a second term are the least team of rivals ever. explain that a bit. >> yes. i mean these are a team of friends. i don't blame the president. look, you're in the second term now, you've won a big election like he did. you don't want to h
to the obama administration. there wasn't a question of whether or not women were represented well in high leadership position ins that administration because we just were. we were just mapphappened to be there. i think that president obama could work harder to find people that he could promote. michelle portnoy defense department, well regarded on both sides of the aisle and the defense department. she could have been a person to promote that instead after former republican, or a republican. >> megyn: we're minutes away from the president coming out and listen about jack lew. on the other side we want to talk about this, they suggest there's a culture of sort after old boy's network at the white house right now. is that connected? we'll talk about that after this. watch this. >> good afternoon everybody, please have a seat. a little more than four years ago i stood with mr. tim geithner and announced him as my first nominee to my cabinet. we were barely two months into the financial crisis, the stock market had cratered, the housing market had cratered as well. bank after bank was on the
virginia women voted 54% in favor of barack obama. it's increasingly a diverse state, a purple state. i kind of scratch my head. how do they get their math if all they want to do is do a war on women? how do they want to expand that map if 54% of all voters are women? >> yet, jonathan, there are now four states with only one abortion clinic, mississippi, arkansas, and north and south dakota. this is often because republicans use onerous regulations, regulations, of course, that they deride in every other aspect of governance, but which they apply to prevent countless facilities from qualifying for usage. >> so, for instance, the virginia law that maria teresa pointed out, among the regulations that abortion clinics would have to abide by, abortion clinics would have to be regulated along the lines of a hospital -- a hospital operating room so they would have to have the ventilation system for a sterile environment even though one is not needed to perform an abortion. they would have to have regulated widths for hallways and doors for abortion clinics. and this is another one that is rat
bring me binders full of women. maybe president obama -- we made fun of mitt romney when he said it. maybe president obama needs some binders full of women and by the way, that leaves kathleen sebelius in the cabinet. and they've said kathleen sebelius is staying but nobody's said anything about janet napolitano in the cabinet. is she staying or isn't she staying? so the president's opened himself up to some criticism here. charlie rangel jumped on it yesterday. he was asked on msnbc, how does this look? does very a diversity problem? >> it's embarrassing as hell. we've been through all of this with mitt romney and we were very hard on mitt romney with his women binders. i kind of think there's no excuse when it is the second term. the first term, you can say people got to know who is around that's qualified in order to get this job. >> bill: so i ask the question to you does the president have a little problem here with diversity? 1-866-55-press. by the way compounding the problem, the president's now looking for looking for looking for a new chief of staff. everybody reports there
stepping down as head of the epa, the obama administration's at a net loss when it comes to women and minorities in the cabinet. "outfront" tonight, roland martin, rosa brooks, and reihan salam. rosa, let me start with you. this is a president who campaigned aggressively on women's reproductive rights and equal pay for equal work. it was a big part of his campaign. he won the women's vote by double digits over mitt romney. should the president be asking for something that he mocked, i.e., binders of women? >> i'm tempted to send him a few binders. i know a lot of fantastic women. i think this isn't an issue of affirmative action here. this is an issue of having to reach far down in order to find a woman who is a little bit less qualified than man and putting her up there. this is a question of you got a bunch of equally qualified people, one of whom is a democratic woman in a lot of these cases, why are we not trying to put those women in these positions. >> roland, this is pretty interesting. jay carney, white house spokesman, said we want the best person for the job, and we valu
that he didn't want to answer when he was considered four years ago. had a ha ge8, obama said would be an outspoken advocate for severs men and women. and his business experience will help him prioritize pentagon spending cuts that everyone knows is coming. >> even though we make tough fiscal choices we have to do so wisely guided by a our stlaj and keep the military the strongest fighting force. >> reporter: but it drew immediate fire. it was a 14-year-old comment about a diplomat being aggressively gay which hagel has apologized and his opposition in iraq and troop surge and independents what he called the jewish lobby and called for talks with hezbollah. all which led lindsay graham and in your face nomination, that the number two republican senator frankly skeptical. >> i think the president has much better choices as secretary of defense than to choose somebody who fails when it comes to the number one security issue mainly a nuclear iran. >> he praised john brennan's tireless work as counter-terrorism director. >> reporters ask you, you don't get any down time. john said, i do
and there is nothing unusual about that process. >> i am wondering how important it is to president obama to have women in prominent roles in his new cabinet. >> the president does believe diversity is very important. he also believes that picking the absolute right person for each job is very important. the nominees he announced today represent that principle he believes senator hagel and john brennan are the right people for the jobs which they have been nominated. as part of this, we have secretary clinton, who after four years is leaving office. the homeland security secretary, we have ambassador susan rice indicating she is staying on in new york as the u.s. representative to the united nations. and there are you know, obviously other remarkably capable women in positions of high office in this administration and will continue to be. >> some of them, in terms of replacing secretary clinton leaving do you think -- >> i think any suggestion that secretary clinton was chosen because of her gender would be rejected by senator clinton and others. you know everyone that is secretaried in finding the ver
from the obama administration and how the republicans were to blame for not including women. then it turned out that mitt romney hired more women than any other state. >>brian: it was put out that in the white house women made less than men. if you look at the campaign, the president promised women contraceptives and abortions. he didn't promise them a table at power. >>gretchen: he wasn't in favor of that bill that would be equal pay, ledbetter bill. >>steve: we have secretary of state john kerry still in. the new secretary of defense is a man. the nominee any way. and the new c.i.a. director is a man. and not that i'm anti-man. but if they do need good candidates, mitt romney has got binders full of women he could supply at the white house. >>gretchen: we're falling back to that? >>brian: i never forget. on his radio show yesterday, mike huckabee, former governor of the great state of arkansas, said how come so much test test testerone in the cabinet and so little estrogen. he said if you look around, all these appointments he's making in the white house are all white guys
to use the democrat's own campaign rhetoric against them saying obama is waging a war on women by not having enough of them in his staff. on his radio show yesterday huckabee criticized the president for appointing a bunch of white guys and faulted the democratic party for promising women contraception and abortions but not positions of authority. some of the administration's most powerful women are leaving in the upcoming months including hillary clinton, u.n. ambassador susan rice and senior adviser valerie jarrett. more coming up on the "bill press show." stay with us. iq will go way up.

donough and ronald klain. let me get your reaction to this. >> barack obama is black. >> some of the president's top advisers are women, valerie jarrett, half of the white house staff is women. that's been a diverse cabinet and white house staff. what we're experiencing now is a communications problem more than an actual diversity problem. >> rich, is this an optics problem? >> let me agree with bill. that this is -- this is a very difficult job to fill because you have to be so much in tune with the president. if you want to start add up blacks and womens and christians, that's fine, but the chief of staff role is not the place to do that because you have to be in tune with the president all the time. what burton was saying -- bob, i called you bill. what bill was saying was exactly right, that you have to just have somebody that you can trust, you can go to bed -- president go to bed at 11:00 knowing the chief of staff will still be there at 2:30 the next morning. >> here's the other side of the argument. if you buy what rich is saying, you have to disagree with what we've heard from charlie range
of president obama's second term. not enough women. the chief political analyst, gloria, a lot of talk about hillary clinton leaving being replaced by a male. leaving the epa. you have the positions going to men. is this a problem for the president? >> the second where she was hidden by the communications director is not the kind of optics this white house would like. when you talk to them, they are quite defensive about it as one would imagine. they throw out the statistics. they are women and this is a president and 47% of the nominees that have been confirmed the. he nominated two and on and on. this is a problem for them though. because that was photograph and the core log rave of all of this transition has been handled not as smoothly as they would probably like. you had the fiscal cliff in the middle of things, right? >> right, but -- >> all appointments did not move the way they wanted. they department get susan rice and put michelle in at defense. some wanted. you talk about the photograph, but let me share another photo. this one, this was the original photo published in the times t
women. i think the message has probably been received by the obama white house. i think at the end of the day, it's always good to have more women in the room. i suspect they will. >> and, al hunt, one of the other strains of criticism is that the president -- and i guess you want people who agree with you for the most part but the president is choosing from a relatively small pool. pretty interesting that the president, the vice president, the secretary of defense designee and the secretary of state designee all served together on the senate foreign relations committee. >> he turned upside down that concept four years ago. i think the people who he picked are very capable but let me take the economic team for a second. i think jack lew is an enormously capable person as are other people but you know something, george, these people are tired. they are exhausted. they have been through one battle after another. when you talk about hillary clinton being spent, being exhausted so are these people and they're not bringing in any infusion of new people with new ideas. not necessarily re

, is this the real war on women? at least it's a battle of the photograph. today the white house releasing the photo of president obama's staff meant to combat another photo on the front page. new york times. here is what the controversy is all about. the new york times ran a story criticizing the president for having a male dominated staff. the times printed a photo of president obama with ten male advisors, this photo obviously got under the white house's skin because the white house has now released a photo showing president obama meeting with several female advisors. they include senior advisor, valerie jarrett, and others, what do you think is the war on women fought here? go to and tell us. shocking from the wife of the lottery winner to died from cyanide poisoning. what does she have to say about her husband's mysterious death? and baseball great pete rose he's hear talking about the news that left baseball fans stumped today and a rapper starring in a controversial reality show responding back, the controversial over all my babies mamas. that's next. when you have the most adva
at three women for 15 cabinet posts. not the diversity we would expect from obama that we would hope for from obama and it seems or a little late in the game to make up for that. so is he just going to be behind the eight ball now? >> well, you know, it is interesting because women's issues as you know is a big issue in the campaign. the president made it an issue and as did the republicans and the president trying to drive a wedge and won 55% of the women's vote and i think he made the point, you know, he wanted women's health issues and equality in pay and same time with the departure of hillary clinton, you are looking at a national security cabinet all men and there is concern. the president to be fair to him, was in favor of susan rice it looked like. didn't work out. now you have a treasury secretary announced soon, probably jack lu and replaced by a male candidate, as well. i have heard and did write about this today. there is some frustration and this is dogged obama since the beginning of his first term when there was some friction inside the white house, you know, rumbling
in the obama administration. i have to an ask for your reaction to this thing with "new york times," no women in photograph with 10 men advisors with the president, next one they are tweeting, a 30% improvement over their performance with three women added. >> i think that this was a photograph that spoke more than a thousand words, more than any word in black and white in the "new york times" it said, here ihe'shere'sthe guys, they immedy pressured them to run another photo. >> they spent an entire g.o.p. season, with a war on women, they throw a few women out the there. if we put a few women in photos that will get our message out. neil: messaging is a bit of a problem. lou: the republicans have forgotten about jobs, and the white house never took it up. and ideas that priorities are immigration, and gun control. this is if i may use the phrase, crudscrewed up. >> it is terribly screwed up. the president thinks that the economy is growing more in 2013, he does not have an economic agenda. you know. presidents about this time in 6 term they have a big issue or a road map for america's future
and it at no cost. the image of wom democrats' convention was that women were utterly helpless unless the government stepped in and provided birth control and abortions that perception was furthered by the absurd political ad of the obama campaign about a woman named julia who from cradle to grave depended on good old uncle sugar for everything from education, a job, healthcare, food, housing, and retirement. now, the women in my family and the women i know and work with, well, frankly, they are as good as any of the men that i know and work with i never thought of them as being helpless and unable to function without someone from the government or some man sheparding them through life. silly me. it just never occurred to me that i needed to see women as helpless. i guess that's why the liberals went stark rating linda blair with her head spinning circles and pea soup enraged at me. i'm not the one that you ought to be mad at. i was just saying what some of your heros have said. you see, if women aren't getting much more than birth control pills and abortion from this administration, sure not my fau

three-way bass at the highest profile vacancies, mr. obama has invited criticism is making diversity a priority. but she joined the criticism? >> guest: absolutely not. this is a president who has been a leader on bringing in women and people of color in the administration. this is the first president who has gotten to women of the united states supreme court. that is a generational change for that quarter. he has an incredible cabinet. janet napolitano is still sitting for secretary of homeland security, cat its affiliates at health and human services. i think you'll see additional women and people of color come into this administration. and let's keep in mind, he did talk about putting susan rice as secretary of state. i find this criticism unfair. he's finding the best people for the job and best hopes he can get through the united states senate. c-span: those of us in a circle, to? >> guest: we work directly with women because for women's organization and i see more and more of that. this president has been incredibly strong on bringing people in the process, both women and peopl

they released today. president obama, looking at the wop going who the heck are you? look, he has a lot of women in the white house. i got to say i think he is criticized unfairly. he has done a good job of stocking his cabinet and the administration and his campaign with a lot of women. so i actually have to be fair there. you can say a lot about him. he is not diverse is untrue. he is not groping the female employees in the white house like some presidents. father of the year. >> eric: i'll go quickly. this morning on "fox and friends" they talk about dogs loving to watch fox and friends. and e-mail their dog watching "fox and friends." my dog freedom was on. put the picture up. look what someone said in fox, their dog angus. the dog and their kids love fox. he's watching freedom my dog on "fox and friends." put a picture up there. a little secret, though. steve and the family love "the five" the best. good boy. robert? >> bob: this is a proud day and sad day for me. my son alex is on his way to college now. he is going to rollins college in florida, which is eric's alma mater. i will tell you
involving men. i'm wondering how important it is to president obama to have women in roles in the cap knelt? >> the president decuzzbreeve that diversity is very important and he does believe picking the right person for each job is very important. and the nominees he announced today represent that principle. he believes senator hagel and john brennan are the right individuals to the jobs they have been nominated. i would remind you as part of president obama's national security team, we have secretary clinton who is leaving office and secretary nepal tan no who is leaving. senator rise will be staying on as the repetitive cabinet level position and there are obviously other remarkably capable women in positions of high office in this administration and will continue to be. >> presumably, some of them will obviously leave over time and i'm wondering in terms of having a replacement for instance with secretary clinton leaving, do you think -- >> i think secretary clinton being chosen because of her gender would be rejected. and not choosing any of them for their qualifications would be rejec
